How does an ordinary Aussie bloke go from motor-cross riding and working as a welder to setting up a social enterprise fashion business? You’re going to meet James Bartle, founder of Outland Denim. This is a candid eye-opening interview about an extraordinary story.

We talk about the tough stuff: Who gets trafficked, and who does the trafficking and why? Is it possible to empathise with their desperation?

We talk about materials, and how organic and reduced waste is essential to the big picture. We talk about B Corps and value-driven business, the state of ethical fashion right now, & where the industry is improving and failing. Plus there’s heaps of insights into how to set up, run and make a success of a sustainable, ethical fashion label.

This is the last of 3 shows on modern slavery. Don't miss the previous 2. We’ve managed to make them accessible and even inviting. No mean feat for such a tricky subject.
